“Blade Runner” star Sean Young has come forward with a sexual harassment accusation against disgraced Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein, saying in a podcast interview that the mogul exposed himself to her in the early 1990s on a film produced by his former production company, Miramax. Young recalled working on the 1992 Miramax film “Love Crimes,” and said she “personally experienced him pulling his you-know-what out of his pants.”
“My basic response was, ‘You know, Harvey, I really don’t think you should be pulling that thing out, it’s not very pretty,’” Young recalled telling him as she spoke on the “Dudley and Bob with Matt Show” podcast yesterday in Austin, Texas, (as reported in The Hollywood Reporter). “And then leaving, and then never having another meeting with that guy again, because it was like, ‘What on earth?’”
Young also recalled how Warren Beatty allegedly harassed her, for which she says she was criticized at the time by Barbra Streisand. Beatty previously denied Young’s claim.

When Young auditioned for “The Mirror Has Two Faces,” Young said she went to her audition with Streisand and quoted Streisand as saying, “I think it’s disgusting that you talked to the press!” Young added, “And what I had said to the press was that I was harassed. That I was sexually harassed by Warren Beatty. And she told me she thought that was disgusting.”
Young joins an ever-growing list of more than 40 other women who have come forward and accused Weinstein of sexual misconduct, harassment or assault.
